Don't worry, I'm sure whatever they show to the business and media will be relayed publicly.

Also quite excited about what they wrote in the last couple of paragraphs, it shows they care about us.

I've already told them that most of us won't have tickets to attend on the Saturday, so hopefully they don't plan for activities then!

If media are allowed, then I'm sure we will get news and video/screenshots from the event.
What this tells me is that YsNet is going there alone without the support of Sony or Shibuya

It's not a private showing.

Sorry, been away for a little while. Loved the last two updates.

Im sure the team will be doing something in the entertainment area. If not, why dont we put together something in the area? A little celebration stand for the series or get together party for fans and potential new fans etc.

Either way, next month is going to be amazing.

Was hoping for a date in this update maybe. At least we know have a little more insight how Shenmue III is going to be shown. Well it's going to take some extra effort to get to it then...

This update is kind of confusing, it's like they want to show the public stuff but can't right now?

According to the website, the business area is open on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.

I expect they've got booth space/a room for the duration, so I guess the earliest we'd be seeing information coming out of Gamescom is the 22nd.

What is shown in the business area will be made public.

It's just YSnet will not have a publicly accessible booth, but are aware of fans attending and are looking into trying to provide them with an event of some kind.

Yeah man I guess it could be much worse news. It's like they are working on trying to show the public stuff rather then more of a private booth but like you said, whatever they show will be shown anyway. I hope the fans attending Gamescom get to see it really well and be happy. I still think it's too early for Shenmue HD but it's still exciting and interesting to see what happens! Let's not get to hasty though. Let's hope for the best!

Pretty shitty update. ](*,)

If they were gonna make it a business only appointment they shouldn't have made the last update or at least told us it's gonna be business only in the first place.

Now that I know Yu will probably just be in the business area I'm not sure if I'll even go to Gamescom. Might still go since some of my friends are going anyway but I don't really have to be there. We'll have to wait and see.

Will put my tickets on sale here as soon as I have decided if and which day to go, so please send me a PM if you want tickets.

It's an easier pill to swallow for German Shenmue fans I suppose, as a potentially underwhelming conference won't break anyone's savings.

International fans? Fuggedaboutit.

I understand it's an event only for press but they clearly say everything showed in there will be made public in press sites.
Besides, in June update they said they will show the latest clips and info so it is pretty clear for me!
